I haven't grown garlic before it looks easy is it possible to grow in pots as i have a small garden

I had some garlic cloves in my fridge which started to sprout so I planted them in pots and they are doing really well. Do garlic bulbs produce any flowers?

Any advice . Like Monty i planted garlic in october but as get there isnt any signs of growth coming though the ground. Should i wait. Or is it to late to plant again.
